Press Release 26 December 2011

The Islamic Republic of Iran is considering Sakineh Mohamadi Ashtiani’s execution

This is an attempt to gauge the international response

Malek Ajdar Sharifi, the head of East Azerbaijan province’s justice department, has announced that the Islamic Republic of Iran is considering changing Sakineh Mohamadi Ashtiani’s stoning sentence to execution by hanging and said that they are waiting for the go-ahead from the Ministry of Justice to execute Sakineh.

Clearly, the regime has been unable to stone Sakineh to death because of the global outrage. The regime arrested her lawyer and son and forced her and her son to ‘confess’ on Press TV and incriminate themselves. They have been barred from contacting international institutions.

By planning to execute Sakineh, the Islamic regime is trying to show the world that despite public outrage, it will continue its execution machinery in order to ensure its survival.

The International Committee against Stoning declares:

This is a shameless attempt by the regime and its criminal judicial system to test the reaction of world public opinion in order to create the groundwork for Sakineh’s murder.

Sakineh’s image has become a global symbol against stoning and Sharia laws. The world has risen up in defence of Sakineh and declared it would not ever allow sadists and murderers to stone women and men to death again. By executing Sakineh, the Islamic regime wants to destroy all efforts in her support.

Every year during the New Year period the Islamic regime tries to kill-off well-known cases. Last year it executed Shahla Jahed and this year they are trying to murder Sakineh.

The International Committee against Stoning will not allow Sakineh to be executed. All people and organisations that have stood up before to save Sakineh from death by stoning must once again stand up to help save Sakineh’s life.

    Iran: Woman Sentenced to Stoning, Pardoned
    Sakineh Ashtiani begnadigt

    … Ayatollah Larijani, Head of Judiciary of the Islamic Republic of Iran, announced on March 18, 2014 that Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani has been pardoned. Ashtiani was sentenced to death by stoning in 2006, having been convicted of „illicit sexual relations“ and „complicity in the murder of her husband“ — a decision that sparked international outrage from human rights groups and celebrities alike.

    Ayatollah Larijani told Fars News Agency that „Ms. Ashtiani’s case was the source of four months of widespread attacks against the regime… this individual was sentenced to death for murder but the international groups began a controversial campaign over it…. we did not pay much attention to those efforts…. we are letting her out simply for good behavior.“

    Ms. Ashtiani was the subject of one of the largest international campaigns initiated by International Committee Against Executions and International Committee Against Stoning by their founder, Mina Ahadi, who was contacted by Ms. Ashtiani’s son, Sajjad Ghaderzadeh.

    „I initially received a phone call in 2006 from a man asking for help because his mother was going to be stoned to death in Iran. In 2010 I received yet another frantic call from Sakineh’s son, who informed me that his mother was going to be stoned in two days; that is when we started campaigning very strongly for her all around the globe,“ said Ahadi in a telephone interview from Germany.

    NEUE ZÜRCHER ZEITUNG 19.03.2014

    Iranische Ehebrecherin aus Haft entlassen

    (dpa) Die zweimal zum Tode verurteilte Iranerin Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani darf wegen guter Führung das Gefängnis vorerst verlassen. Nach fast acht Jahren hinter Gittern bekomme die wegen Ehebruchs und Beihilfe zum Mord verurteilte Frau bis auf weiteres Hafturlaub, sagte der Leiter der iranischen Menschenrechtskommission, Mohammed Jawad Larijani, am Dienstag. Juristenkreise in Teheran sehen darin eine vorzeitige Freilassung. Dies wurde jedoch von offizieller Seite nicht bestätigt. Der Fall Mohammadi Ashtiani hatte weltweit für Schlagzeilen gesorgt. …

    Die Menschenrechtskommission machte keine Angaben dazu, ob Mohammadi Ashtiani ins Gefängnis zurückkehren muss. Dies wird allgemein aber nicht mehr erwartet, nachdem die Kinder der Frau zahlreiche Gnadengesuche gestellt hatten und die Familie des Opfers ausbezahlt worden war. Wegen der internationalen Proteste wollte die iranische Regierung den Fall ausserdem gern vom Tisch haben.
